Technical Committees are the backbone of DFI providing the practical forum for finding common ground in the deep foundations industry. Committees provide opportunities for all members to identify and address issues that impact deep foundations practice. Committees convene engineers, contractors, manufacturer and equipment suppliers, owners, and researchers to promote the discussion that builds the mutual understanding and consensus required to broadly influence and improve codes and standards, and design, construction and quality control and assurance procedures. Committees explore industry challenges and opportunities, develop guidance and specifications, conduct industry-driven research, and prepare event programs that educate and debate current topics. Join a committee to collaborate with global industry practitioners; stay updated on design, construction, and market trends; build your professional network of colleagues and supplier resources; and contribute to providing high value deep foundation solutions for society.
“I really enjoy DFI, and it’s definitely the most worthwhile professional organization I belong to. The reuse task force is just one example of the energy DFI puts toward important industry issues. DFI is great at combining professionals of different stripes to tackle practical issues facing the industry. Committees are the lifeblood of DFI, and the biggest benefit of membership. The committees generally meet monthly via web meetings, and include updates on efforts like our reuse task force, DFI-sponsored research, and other industry-improving efforts.”A. Boeckmann
